No Problems, Only Solutions.
Our specialist geotechnical, environmental and structural teams work together to provide you with cost-effective and practical solutions to your development challenges. We are experts in identifying and finding solutions to ground and environmental hazards to ensure your project can be delivered in a compliant and cost-efficient manner.
GRM provides development services and solutions to aid both large and small developers in a wide variety of market sectors: Industry, Commercial, Retail, Residential (both private individuals and large PLC’s), Public, Education, Healthcare, Leisure and Transport.
We can often demonstrate that a perceived problem is not really a hazard to the development, so for the client, a small investment in ground investigation can return many times its value in terms of cost savings.
